Today, I tried Movement Meditation. I have never done it before, and I thought it would be nice to check it out to see if I would like this kind of meditation.
It was a little different from what I normally do. The only moving type meditation I have done was walking meditation. Most of the time I meditate on the floor or on a chair.
The instructor used a lot of Tai Chi moves, starting low on the ground, coupled with deep breathing. To him, moving his body to flow and to go wherever it took him was a type of play, and he seemed quite happy and he looked like he enjoyed it. I liked that some of the moves increased my flexibility, even after the first try, and most of the moves were low impact.
I will have to try it again when it is not drizzling and it is warmer, to really get the feel of whether or not this is something I want as part of my meditation plan. I’m glad I tried it though.
